Real Food Wednesday 5/11/11


It’s that crazy time of the week when you entice us with your links and comments to go check out your blogs and your great REAL FOOD WEDNESDAY tips and ideas or recipes!  (Visit that link if you’re new and want to learn more about this blog carnival.)  Remember, if you’re a blogger, you’ll draw some good traffic to your site by participating!  (This is how I built up my traffic in the beginning.)


1.  It’s not easy for me to catch them all on my own, and I’d really like everyone to play fair, so if you see any posts that don’t link back to this post (blog carnival etiquette you know!), can you email me please?  If you don’t know how, I explain it at this REAL FOOD WEDNESDAY link.  (I hate playing hardball and removing links, so let’s all be good to the others who are bringing more traffic to your blogs with their links by doing the same, OK?) 

2.  Also, PLEASE let me know if you see a recipe posted that is blatantly not Real Food.  Someone who is striving and on the journey is one thing (as we all are), but if it’s really bad (canned bread, Velveeta, margarine, Egg Beaters, unfermented soy or any other fake food), please tell me so I can remove it.  (If I’ve removed your post, I hope there are no hard feelings, but people come to this post for Real Food ideas, and I don’t want to disappoint.)

3.  I hope you’ll retweet and stumble this post and also any sites you visit – this will get more exposure to all of us, thank you!

4.  Don’t have a blog?  We still want to hear from you!  Please leave your tips or recipes in the comments.

Thank you!

You’re up, and we can’t wait to see your stuff!

    Hi Kelly,

    Hope you’re having a great week & had a wonderful Mother’s Day! I’m sharing an EASY & Frugal Stovetop Chicken Parm Pasta this week. I love that it keeps my kitchen cool & that I can stretch 2 hormone free chicken breasts into a meal that feeds my family of 5 with leftovers. Let me also add…it’s a man pleaser. My hubby doesn’t complain about the lack of meat.

    Have a GREAT week!!

    Hi! I’ve been out (happily) tromping through the weeds, as usual. This week, I’m spotlighting a plant that is really handy because it’ll draw out the poison of a bite or sting. But, heck, it just tastes great too. Look for this one, it’s worth knowing!

    My post this week is about how grateful I am for grassfed meat and real food. Following the Weston A. Price diet literally saved my life and health. I am grateful for all who spread the word about real food. This includes you, Kelly! And everyone who blogs about real food on Wednesday (or any other day).

    Thanks for hosting! My post includes a couple of free downloads for menu planning in season. Now that the farmer’s markets are open and asparagus and rhubarb are available here, it’s time to get back into the menu planning habit to take advantage of the fresh produce.

    Thanks for hosting Kellie. I’m halfway through a challenge to re-invent the same three recipes with the same basic ingredients as many times as possible. Today I’ve linked up a frittata, pineapple salad, and some chocolate cookies. All in one post.

    I’ve been taunting people on Facebook for a few days with a low carb, grain free recipe for something I grew up with. Swedish pancakes are a beautiful thing, and I feel so happy to be able to eat them while avoiding grains.

  7. says

    Taco Bell… is this possibly the #1 least healthy fast food restaurant chain? I answer that question in the blog post. The ingredient list for steak, seasoned beef and more disgusts me like no other. I pray they go bankrupt asap!

  8. says

    I’ve shared recipes for grain-free lime and coconut macaroons as well as herbed pork and cabbage stew. Both are GAPS-legal and delicious! Thanks!

    a reader sent in this fun omelet recipe. she made this for her daughter when suddenly refused to eat eggs. can’t have eggs on the no-thanks list! too many necessary easy to digest nutrients in them. happy wednesday, thanks for hosting kelly.

    Thanks for hosting again Kelly! I shared a recipe for Apple Spiced Pop-Over. It’s a fun way to spice up the breakfast routine and it would also be great for brunch because it has a lovely presentation. I can’t wait to check out some of these other recipe’s and posts!

    Sharing my simple, shortening free pie crust recipe today! When we made the switch to real foods, I really struggled giving up my Crisco pie crusts… Until I figured out this recipe. No more rancid veggie oil crusts for us!

    Thanks for hosting Kelly! Have a great rest of the week.

  12. says

    Thanks for hosting! I posted a summary of our experiences and foods from the first stage of the GAPS intro diet. Not so fun, but definitely worth the effort!

  13. says

    Thanks for hosting, Kelly! This week I’m kicking back with a glass of golden fairie nectar AKA dandelion wine. :-) I finally tapped into the batch I made last year, and it is really good. It’s also a traditional medicinal. Time to put those “weeds” to work.

    Thanks for always hosting this terrific event, Kelly! It brings over so many wonderful visitors!!

    My teeth are the topic of discussion this week, and I’ve put it in a video for all to see. The teeth really are making some transformation.

    As always, I wish my parents had known about a nutrient dense diet, so that I would have been blessed with the teeth nature intended. I wish I had known about the diet so my own children didn’t need braces, as well.

    But this is why we blog and get the word out about the dangers of processed denatured food and the amazing benefits of giving our body what it truly needs to function at it’s best!

    Hi Kelly, thanks for hosting another week of Real Food Wednesday. I am excited to get some new recipes for my summer menu. I posted a simple vinaigrette recipe that is my personal favorite for spring field greens. It goes really well with goat cheese too.

  16. says

    Hi Kelly, thanks for hosting this link- it’s wonderful! We have been making fresh farm cheeses for the past few years. Today we would like to share our recipe and process for making a simple, tasty cheese called Panir.

    Hi RFW gang!

    This week I got to test out my new stand mixer and ice cream maker for my birthday and made homemade ice cream, the best ice cream I’ve ever had!

    I hope everyone has a great week and thank you, Kelly, for hosting!

    This post is on my new blog- all about living a Real Food dairy-free diet in the Real World! I don’t live off the grid, my veggie garden is pretty small, I have a small food budget, and an equally small freezer! I also am not unknown to the interior of some local restaurant, lol. :)

    BUT, even if I laspe at times I know the wonderful healing & health in REAL FOOD!! This linked post is just fun!!

    I shared two different recipe for good ol’ ranch dressing! MMM :) Sans commercial crap. Also, now that the weather is nice, I suggest what I call a “messy fingers” meal idea for your family. Fun Fun!!

    Hi Kelly! Thank you so much for hosting Real Food Wednesday. I am sharing one of my husbands favorite dishes – Spinach Ricotta Pie. We make it with homemade ricotta and it is simply delicious!

    Thank you again,

  20. says

    I added my recipe for “Mexican” Casserole. This is my first time posting here, so I didn’t post the link quite right. I used my name instead of the recipe name…whoops. I hope I haven’t broken any rules…

    Thanks for hosting, Kelly! Wow, the party is jumpin’ today! I tried the one-rise method of sourdough last night and baked it up this morning. It is stupid easy, less sour, and light and fluffy like commercial yeast bread. It is Joey approved, but more importantly it is Greg approved, my resident sourdough hater. He LOVED it and said he wished I would stop making sourdough and just make this. I am pleased!

  22. says

    I’m sorry, I’m new at this linking thing and I messed up and hopefully you can delete #88. I really like your website and am excited about taking a real food journey with our family! I hope I linked up right and re-linked right back to you… let me know if not so I can fix it! :)

    I linked to a bean and veggie soup that was really filling and satisifying last night! It is made with homemade chicken stock and vegetables from local farmers (from last years season stockpilled in deep freezer). It’s quick, easy and delicious!

  23. says

    Thanks for hosting again, Kelly! Today I’m sharing a recipe I don’t quite have a name for. It’s like a meatloaf got together with a falafel, and then you top it with a lemon-garlic-tahini sauce. Yum.

  24. says

    Inspired by Butterpoweredbike’s post, I had to go and try out a plantain salad! Of course, I didn’t eat it plain – I topped it with my kids’ favorite dressing – Homemade Catalina French Dressing.

  25. says

    Today I am sharing an article about golden, nutrient-rich, spring butter,
    Buttercup Butter: A Springtime Luxury and a recipe for homemade sweet cream butter.

    Best wishes & thank you Kelly!
